I’m going to give you some very simple rules that I call the basic ingredients of success in your recipe for a long and happy life. It’s crucial that you adhere to them, if you really want to lead or have an interesting existence.
*First you need a good diet, preferably natural, made up of so-called ‘organic’ foods. They are essential for your body, and also for your mind; since, as the famous saying goes, “You are what you eat.” Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.
If the way you eat is unbalanced, if you eat to excess or absorb too much fat or sugar, you open the door to a number of diseases, and a life littered with physical problems that, in the end, will probably be shorter than average.
*Physical exercise is a good way of looking after your body, your heart and your metabolism, and also impacts the general functioning of your organism. In addition, sports have a positive effect on your mind by making it stronger.
Your lifestyle should include exercise, but you also need to get enough rest, sleep at regular hours, and maintain a positive frame of mind. All these principles are recommended for taking care of your body and your mind.
